Three months ago on Saturday, July 17, 2010 at Grace Christian Church in Helena, Alabama, I became Mrs. @inthemiddle.
Many people have asked how did you meet? Here is our story………
We had a mutual friend that spoke about us to each other for a very long time. She spoke of us to each other so much over the course of a year or more, I felt like I knew him before I met him. We did not know each other face to face, but through her conversations we felt like we knew each other pretty well and I had also heard his voice from time to time as well. Then one night a couple of years later, fate intervened. We finally had met face to face. I had to drive my friend’s car and him to her house and we rode together. I was thinking to myself, I could listen to that voice forever. It wasn’t the first time I had had that thought.
What is interesting about our relationship is that most of it was spent online since he lived an hour from me. He would message me in the morning as soon as he was awake, it was always the same message:
“Good morning Angel, I love you.”
He has always called me Angel from the very moment we started talking to each other. As soon as we arrived at work we would sign into chat and talk all day, then as soon as we arrived home we would talk long hours into the night via chat on instant messenger.
One day, he finally asked me out on a date and we met at On Tap in Lakeview, from that night on were inseparable. I was smitten. This man makes me laugh, even when times are tough, and since January 2010 there hasn’t been much to laugh at, as you can see from my previous blog posts, but he manages anyway. He keeps me from taking myself too seriously, he is a gentleman, my best friend, and some days, without him, I don’t know what I would do.
When people ask me what he is like I can honestly say James Bond and be deadly serious. I can hear you saying, “seriously?” Yes, seriously. He has that same confident air, he is debonair, he has the same charming qualities, he is fiercely protective and completely loyal. He is loving and generous, and a man who walks with Christ.
This man made me believe in love again. He came along just when I thought true love only existed in fairy tales. He is my prince charming, my best friend, my partner, my love, my shelter, my heart and my home. I am proud to be called his wife.
